Personal growth


Life lessons are not always easy, but it's better to choose uncomfortableness over numbness. When we run from our lessons, we not only miss the gift life is offering, 
but to numb ourselves, may require closing off our hearts...

To thy own self be true...

My brother, mom, and I...

Many of us are people-pleasers. My mom was not. Even as she neared death, she was true to herself. She refused to let the doctors treat her lung cancer aggressively. She knew when she had enough... When I think of all the years I spent trying to make others happy because I didn't have the courage to be real, I can appreciate the strength it took for mom to live by her own convictions. I used to think she was selfish, but now I think perhaps she was wise. Years of working on my own issues with co-dependency has given me a deeper understanding and appreciation for my mom...

Humility



The path to God is a humble one. 
Don’t bring pride along 
or you will quickly lose your way.

Pursuing passion

Love this new vendor at the Farmer's Market
She has taken cookies to a whole new level...
They are not only fun to look at, but yummy to eat...


There's no doubt that pursuing passion comes with risks. But desire it so deeply that you won’t hesitate when you come to a fork in the road where you must choose between your old life or a new one. Though you may not know what adventures lie ahead, risk everything to find out. For it is only in choosing what matters to your soul, will you know how it feels to be truly alive...

Through the grace of God...


It's taken a lifetime to figure out what my soul desires... 
I am passionate about teaching love & forgiveness... 
Helping women to see their inner beauty and light.. 
Using my art, dolls, photography, words... to make people smile...  
Living a life that is simple, peaceful, and purposeful...

Serenity




It is the season for joy.
Free of desire, I am content 
to lie in the grass and just breathe 
in the mystery of life...

Celebrating love




Happy Valentine's Day to everyone... There are no words to express how 
truly grateful I am for each and every one of you except to say "thank you"
for making my life richer, fuller, more meaningful. I feel honored and blessed 
to walk this journey called "life" with such amazing people...
